  • Excellent scheme with a reputable insitution, rather than some ex-polytech.

  • UCL is an excellent choice. It has a law school which is at least the equal of Oxbridge but does not have the potentially off putting image. It is good to see a firm of the calibre of FBD start to take some action to underpin the inclusiveness message being spun by all the larger firms. Another really good example is Taylor Wessing currently taking a case to the ECJ pro bono challenging the criminalisation of homosexuality in Turkish-controlled Cyprus. It is very easy to put out marketing materials expounding equality. Firms which invest in meaningful initiatives such as these can be taken more seriously in what they say on the subject.

  • I may regret this but after so many comments in I feel I have to ask this: but why do people hate former polytechs so much? Seriously? I get it for commercial lawyers-to-be as they need snob factor to break into even the regional firms let alone London (where obviously its Oxbridge et al or no TC) but it seems that whatever area it relates to, former polytechs are looked down on as essentially the working-class of the University heirarchy even though many are on equal footing if not better in terms of quality than Russell Group uni's who are in that group ust because they get more Governmental funding? Are you just the same people who look down unfairly on Legal Execs (now Chartered)? And does this serious case of University snobbery affect those of us looking for a career in local/High Street practice?
